repost from July, 2018
My bff Kerry is always there for me, ready to correct my typos and grammatical errors, especially those dreaded apostrophes.
It’s hard to believe its July already, it’s absolutely true what my Mother use to say to me,
“Don’t wish your life away Sharon, before you know it you are old”
Why does time seem to move at a faster pace the older you get? I don’t know the answer to that question, what I do know is that we must not waste a second of every day.
I often reflect on her wise words, my beautiful Mum died at only 51 years young and now that I have surpassed her age I would like to think about my life with a zest for making the most of every day.
“Live your life every day with purpose, be excited, laugh, don’t waste a second of living your best life”
Okay the last few words I have taken from my muse Oprah, one of my favourite quotes by Oprah is to simply,
“Live your best life”
I recommend getting yourself a copy of a beautiful hard cover book titled “Live Your Best Life: A Treasury of Wisdom, Wit, Advice, Interviews, and Inspiration from O, The Oprah Magazine.
Speaking of Oprah, I must share my exciting news, Kerry and myself are cruising with Oprah, Gayle and the Oprah Magazine staff in January on Holland America Line’s newest ship the Nieuw Statendam from Fort Lauderdale, Florida cruising the Bahamas.
Oprah Winfrey has been given the title of The Godmother of the Nieuw Statendam.
I promise to fill you in more as we get closer to our departure.
What I can tell you for now is that divine timing was our gift to secure our precious tickets as The Oprah Magazine Girls Getaway Cruise was sold out in less than 24 hours.
Christine Potter Mulhearne who is The Oprah Magazine’s Style Director and blogger of Style me Sassy excitedly announced on her Instagram story that The Oprah Magazine Girls Getaway Cruise sold out in less that 24 hours and that they had broken the Internet.
In other news I am super proud to share with you I have been commissioned this year by The Bali Advertiser, Bali & Beyond Magazine the Jakarta Post and news.com.au as a contributor for their publications.
My dream has manifested into a reality and I have become a Journalist.
Additionally I have been featured in the Siapa section of the Bali Advertiser, it is vital that we must keep up a conversation about the global catastrophe of domestic violence.
My interview with Bill Dalton highlights my passion for speaking our truth, to advocate for a peaceful world where violence is just a bad memory, we need to tell our stories to rally against any form of violence and hatred.
I will continue to write thought provoking content, my desire is to occupy a world where we can live in harmony, a world where we can live side by side without prejudice, without bigotry, without racism or bias about a person’s sexual orientation.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blogs.
